Supermicro Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) must support Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) version 2.0 specifications. DOS 5.0 or later version Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 /Server 2003 32bit and 64bit / Server 2008 32bit and 64bit / Server 2012 / Server 2016; Linux Kernel version 2.6.x or higher. there is noone else here with nutanix experience and have some trouble finding my way in the configuration. (This is for later when you have to validate your Nutanix account). 11) You can then SSH to the CVM that has been created (U: nutanix P: nutanix/4u). I tried to set IPMI IP on the Nutanix Nodes manually, but strange thing even after setting up IPMI IPs I was unable to ping the IPMI interface. ecdsa-with-sha256. ecdsa-with-sha384 EC DSA 256. prime256v1. EC DSA 384. secp384r1. This is the option you want if you're trying to have the simplest setup, at the expense of additional cabling. IPMI is a firmware level interface that allows remote management of a server locally or through a network interface. Use IPMI LAN commands to access the firmware even if the OS is down.

The IPMI LAN firmware supports remote access regardless of the OS.
